Twitter reactions: India beat Australia by 8 wickets to win the ICC Under-19 Cricket World 2018

Posted On / /

A brilliant hundred by Manjot Kalra and some fine bowling earlier in the day enabled India beat Australia by eight wickets and win the ICC Under-19 World Cup final in Mount Maunganui, New Zealand, on Saturday.

Chasing 217 for victory after Australia elected to bat in the final, India hit up with required runs easily and won with 11.1 overs to spare.

Kalra was unbeaten on 101 in the company of Harvik Desai (47).

The Rahul Dravid-coached side thus became the first team in the history of the event to win the crown for a record fourth time.

The triumph put skipper Prithvi Shaw, already being seen as the next big thing in Indian cricket, alongside the likes of Mohammad Kaif (2002), Virat Kohli (2008) and Unmukt Chand (2012) who led teams to the Under-19 World Cup title previously.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to Team India’s victory in the final:
